FiveTen Sam Hill shoes £85

Ultimate downhill kicks

BikeRadar score 4/5

FiveTen’s Stealth Rubber is legendary among gravity freaks. This signature version of the Impact shoe has the S1 version of the sole.

The sole is not particularly flexible, but feedback is good enough to know where you are on the pedals, and power transfer is great.

The shoe doesn’t need to wrap round the pedal because the sole is so tenacious – it honestly never slips. Ever.

This makes these shoes too grippy for dirt jumping, but great for downhill racing, where the toebox and well cushioned sole offer good protection.
